The San Diego Padres made if official Wednesday.

According to  Corey Brock of MLB.com, Padres center fielder Cameron Maybin is will need surgery on his right wrist, causing him to miss the remainder of the season.

Over the course of his career, which began in 2007, the 26-year old has batted .248, has an OBP of .311 and has slugged .370. He has 31 home runs and 135 RBI.

Maybin and the Padres agreed to a $25 million deal through 2016 before the season began. In 2017, the Padres have an option on Maybin worth $9 million.

Maybin was originally selected in the first round of the 2007 draft by the Detroit Tigers, but was dealt to the Florida Marlins, along with Burke Badenhop, Frankie De La Cruz, Andrew Miller, Mike Rabelo and Dallas Trahern for Dontrelle Willis and Miguel Cabrera. In 2010, he was traded from the Marlins to the Padres in exchange for Edward Mujica and Ryan Webb.
